All the Gold ever extracted is 160,000 tons (in 2009) , The American Debt = 14 Trillion Dollars = 1.8 All the Gold ever extracted in Human History !!! The monetary mass in the US is increasing by 15% a year ! Total gold divided by people in the world gives each of us 23 grams
Eric Sprott: Gold was the investment of the last decade and silver will be the investment of this decade , and I do believe in the thesis that silver will get back to a 16 to 1 ratio to Gold , so Gold is over $1600 , so theoretically Silver can be a 100 dollars , I see the buying coming in to one to one I see the supply of Gold above ground is approximately a hundred tims greater than silver but the buying is one to one so something got to give somewhere ....
Frank Holmes, U.S. Global Investors CEO/chief investment officer says that Gold prices can move 15% over any 12 month period "the big bubbles in any sector usually take place with excessive leverage , when gold went $850 in 1980, the futures market was leveraged ten to one ,the bulk of this gold today is not leveraged and you're also seeing emerging market central bankers buying gold. we saw Mexico, Korea, you're seeing a shift and that's basically a cash trade . I think the bouillon ETF is predominantly a cash trade. so we're not in a bubble. we do not have an exponential move , when we look at NASDAQ in the '90s or we look at gold what it did in the '70s , what it did in the '70s."
Gold hits yet another all - time high at $1672/oz and it seems unstoppable as Central Banks acrosse the world continue to buy gold and move away from their US dollar reserves and US treasuries . Gold and Silver continue to rise , and we will likely hit the $2000/oz mark way before the end of this year
Gold record high, spurred by U.S. economic worries and the European debt crisis."gold has traded at another record 1,645 an hour, hitting the all-sometime nominal high, just at the close of equities trading in europe. that brought the losses there brought gold to the new highs we're seeing, but there are several factors at work here. yes, we may be close to a debt deal in washington, but traders are focused on the fact we may see a double dip in the economy here in the u.s. and in europe as well. and add to that the buys we're sees fromation central banks. the first time sorry has bought gold since in 13 years, this is the we're rear looking at central 245s something that's drives the interests to an all-time high. back to you. sharon epperson, thanks so much. electronics arts is starting something new."
" Gold on fire and hitting a new record as they passed the debt limit bill. the traders are saying, yeah, now the deal is done and it has been priced in. what happened about the u.s. downgrade? Fitch came out and they pieced the market with their commentary and we still haven't heard from s&p and moreover as bob mentioned and now the focus is back on the global macro issues that have been in this market place and have caused this gold to rally. the sovereign debt crisis remains and the fact that we have such weak economic data or the ism manufacturing data yesterday and then there's the bank of south Korea. of course, a number of the Asian banks over the last year and a half have been buying gold, India, china and now the bank of south Korea have about 25 metric tons of gold, the first time that they purchased gold in 13 years and this is highlighting the bullish stance that central banks have for gold and the need to diversify away from the dollar and that's what we're seeing in Korea over the last two months"
South Korea has spent more than a billion dollars in gold: the first acquisition in over a decade, justified by uncertainty about global growth and problems related to the sovereign debt of various countries that led the central banks to diversify their reserves in order to protect themselves from market volatility.
The central bank of South Korea announced the move in a statement which says that the central bank has bought 25 tons of gold bullion over the past two months, bringing the total to 39.4 tons of gold reserves. The news helped boost the price of gold which has now reached a new record of $1660/oz
Michael Lewis of Deutsche Bank : Gold price seem to go up when the dollar is falling it goes up when the dollar is rising , people buy it on inflation protection and they buy on deflation protection it is almost in any economical environement it seems to go up , the environment for us is negative the real interest rates are weak , all of this is very favorable to Gold and think we are still going to go up I think the bubble number is beyond $2000/oz so we do have another 20 to 30 percent to go
Tom Cloud : If you look at going back from end of July 2001 to July 2011 Gold is going up 13 percent for every one percent the dollar is gone down , when the dollar goes back to 72 where it was in 2008 , Gold will be $2030 , if it drops to 70 Gold will be $2060 if the dollar drops to 68 it will be $3079 an ounce if it drops to 65 which a lot of economists are predicting by the end of next year Gold will be $4126 an ounce , I do not see why this relationship won't continues ....
Gold Hits Record High after the latest read on the economy came in weaker than expected. Insight on how one gold producer is posting profits, with Richard O'Brien, Newmont Mining president/CEO. "what i would say is what i said a while ago which is i think $1600 gold. i actually thought it might come next year but i think given some of the central government issues, not just here in the u.s. but around Europe, i think we're going to continue to see pressure on gold prices. i just remind all of your viewers that gold in nominal dollars actually from its high from many years ago, $800 would be over $2200. so while we talk about a record high, it's important to know its record in nominal dollars. i do think we continue to see a trend up. i think we're headed to $17.50 next year. i would readjust my estimate and i think we will continue to see pressure on gold prices for many years to come," Richard O'Brien said
James Turk : "It is hard to predict short term targets , all you need to be focusing on is to continue accumulating in this bull market and focus on where the bull market is going , itis always going to go much further than you expect it probably going to last longer than you and I expect and go higher than I expect , but just continue to accumulate , Gold should be higher than $2000 by now but because of the government intervention and anti gold propaganda by the government Gold is still undervalued even though the price have been rising it is still undervalued by all of my historical measures it is not quite as undervalued as it was ten years ago but it is still very undervalued because what's happening over the last ten years is that even though the price of gold has gone up the dollar has been debased by inflation and all kind of crazy things that the central banks and banks are doing to mismanage the dollar , so focus on the long term , focus not so much the price of gold but whether it is a gold value or not and it is a good value under numerical basis based on all my historical measures it is also good value because of its usefulness as a tangible asset , it is a monetary asset that does not have counter-party risk so I think that's important too"
"I am more bullish on Silver than I am on Gold that's why I think the ratio is going to go down to 20 ounces of silver to an ounce of Gold in the long term from 40 ounces of silver to one ounce of Gold at present , Silver will outperform gold , the problem with silver though is there is more volatility to it than it is to Gold and as a a consequence volatility is not for everyone but if you are prepared to accept that volatility I think you have two third of your assets your monetary assets your precious metals assets two thirds in Gold and one third in Silver
Bob Chapman : ...buy gold and silver coins bullion and shares because no matter what they do (on August the second ) it is going to be good for Gold , they will cut the social security , they are bound to kill everyone of the retirees . August is going to be an unusually good month for gold and silver , usually it is slow either flat slightly lower or much higher and the Fall is going to be incredible I think we can see $2200 on gold easy , and we can see $80 in silver easy , this is not going to stop , You got gold acting as the only real currency in the world and it is reflecting all the inflation not just in America , I mean Great Britain is 12 percent right now Europe is around 8 percent , who is kidding who ?, some dealers are having trouble now , so what happens in the fall ? the premiums on silver are as high as 8 dollars an ounce
Roger Wiegand : I think in Monday these characters in Washington will come to an agreement on the debt ceiling I think they will raise it and they will promise some cuts down the road that will never happen , but that will settle down these markets and I think in Monday we will see a pullback on gold and silver not very much but some and then after that it will flatten out and probably after ten days to two weeks we will start a new large rally the biggest one of the year will start in the middle of august till the end of August running all the way to thanks given , our goal is $1707 minimum
Gavin Wendt, Senior Resources Analyst at MineLife, expects gold to reach more record highs as investors continue to flee the U.S. dollar " If you have a look at Gold in inflation adjusted terms it is trading well below where it should be " "the gold rally is based on very very sound fundamentals it is has not been based on any leverage or borrowing which is typically what we see with regards to most bubbles , there a whole lot of leverage and borrowing involved " " we are looking at $2000/oz in the next 12 to 24 months "
We are in a secular bull market for Gold says Jay Taylor, President & CEO, Taylor Hard Money Advisors says gold prices will hit 1800 to 2000. what's going on in Washington does not give confidence to fiat money , Gold is set to go higher over time , $1800/oz to $2000/oz before the end of the year is a reasonable target ...
James Turk : I thinkGold got all the momentum behind it now , we have taking at the $1600 level and yet we have not even stopped there we sort of just moving right through it as if there was not any resistance at all , it is understandable why it is going up AL there are so many problems out there . monetary problems banking problems financial problems the sovereign debt crisis I could go on and on but you got the point , it is must better to own physical gold than it is to be involved in any national currencies at the moment
$1640 and $1650 within the next few days is a reasonable target there seem to be that much buying power behind it , so until anything changes worldwide in terms of improving the financial situation and that's not likely to happen any time soon you got to continue to hold gold and I think more and more people are starting to understand that which is why they are buying
Brenton Saunders, Director at Taurus Funds Management, says that Gold is not in any kind of bubble that Gold Bull run just started says Brenton Saunders because it is hopelessly under-owned , the biggest fund managers in the world , trust funds and central banks are trying to diversify away from what is hopelessly over owned US Treasuries and Forex and the reality is that the alternatives are quite limited , the obvious alternatives are things like the Euro the Yen the Pound and their respective fixed interest the reality is that these markets are not in great shape either ...the reality is that Gold is heavily under-owned in the institutional environment we know it is under owned in central banks environment
The Debt Deal won't stop the Price of Gold from rising , it might pause the price of Gold there might be a small correction but the problem is not resolved , it is very high level of debt that has enerved investors not only in America with the US Dollar but also in Europe where they have debt issues going on as well about bailing out Greece then Italy then Spain says Robert McEwen, of U.S. Gold , he expects $2000 by the end of the year and $4000 four years out
John Kilduff, Founding Partner of Again Capital, talks about his investment strategy in the commodities sector.
You need to have gold exposure , you can buy high because you are going to sell higher ....next upside target by the end of the year is $1700 , the Chinese are under invested in Gold and over exposed to US bonds ....
"We believe with the opening of the new Hong Kong gold an silver
exchange, there will be no physical gold or silver available to the
public by the end of 2011.
Amazingly still less than 1%- about .8 of a percent of Americans own
ANY gold or silver.
All it will take is miniscule 1% of the Chinese public to purchase 1
oz of silver or gold to crash the COMEX . Watch your paper fed debt
notes return to there intrinsic value..
The price of gold. overnight gold hit an all-time nominal high -- $1,624 an ounce. it's backed away a bit from that high here as we have about 15 minutes left in the floor session for trading. but we are looking at gains in gold that have a lot to do with what's happened in the debt crisis here in the u.s. and around the world. $140 jump in the price of gold so far this month, on track for the biggest monthly increase since april. meanwhile when you look at what's happened to some of the gold etfs, the amount of inflows we've seen in those gold etfs, we've seen huge inflows and long open interest in gold futures. that's also been climbing steadily.
Chris Martenson interviews Silver Guru David Morgan 20th July 2011
David Morgan : it is definitely not a free market in the true sense of the word says David Morgan but it is not as manipulated as some people think , the overall trend in Gold and Silver cannot be manipulated , I can almost guarantee that there are multiple owners for every bar that SLV ETF report , it does not mean that that bar does not exist , there are leases and swaps multiple claims on the same silver bar says Morgan , SLV is paper investment that's not silver , you should not consider it as your primary silver investment . The SLV has claim to roughly 300 million ounces of Silver the amount of silver that is held by the dealers on the COMEX is less than 30 million , so in round numbers the SLV is ten times bigger than the COMEX , and the COMEX is what gets all the attention .

Time Monk Radio Network Interviews Presents:
Bill Murphy on TMRN Radio
Bill Murphy : The Standard of living of the Americans will drop by 35 percent it is not going to be pretty , it is not the end of the world but people will be upset by their standard of ling going down the drain ,
Morgan is the FED's Bank and Goldman is the treasury Bank , they have insider information which they use to manipulate the gold and silver market the silver market will blow up , nobody wants to fly with me says Bill Murphy because they are scared that something will happen just as what happened to the whistler Blower Andrew McGuire ,
James Turk : "...right now the dollar depends only on confidence and confidence is very fragile we are starting to see confidence erode internationally , you know the dollar has been in a major downturn for several years we are seeing precious metal prices going up we are seeing commodity prices going up food prices indexes are record high all of these things suggest to me that there is too much money being created by the federal reserve and indeed all central banks around the world and people are taking that money and putting it in things of usefulness , real commodities that have tangible value , useful value , so I think we are very close I think we are going to see some major upheaval within the next year " James Turk of the GoldMoney Foundation speaks about currency devaluation and the rising gold price. How the gold price is rising against all major currencies and monetary policy is political, having abandoned all pretense of seeking monetary stability.
Warren Gilman says that he prefers holding gold coins and bars handy in case there is an emergency he can use that gold to buy what he needs but for the large institutions looking to buy large amount of gold he suggests to use the liquidity of an ETF , but for individuals there is nothing saferthan holding your own gold in your hands he said
Simon Ho, Executive Director at Triple 3 Partners, David Lennox, Resources Analyst at Fat Prophet, and Warren Gilman, Chairman & CEO of CEF Holdings, examine how investors can profit from investing in the yellow metal.
Goldis over one thousands pounds an ounce for the first time in history ,some people think the gold is expenssive at these levels but these people were thinking that gold was expensive at $800 , if you look at the period at which the gold price really did peak in the 1970s it went from $35 to $850 that is approximately a 24 fold price increase in Gold , now in the last 11 years that we had in the gold bull market Gold had only increased by 6 fold , "I think in realistic terms, gold is a reflection of what is going on with fiscal and monetary policies in the developed world. And it is the reflection of what's going in the greater inflation scare in the emerging markets, so I think those pressures are not going to be alleviated anytime soon," Irakli Menabde, founder and fund manager at M2 Capital Partners told CNBC.
Jim Rogers : I do not have a forecast I am just watching , if the dollar turns to confetti then you pick the number there is no number of how high it will go if it continues to be priced in US Dollars ,so it is not a question I even think about , because I am just watching to see how the world evovlves I know it is going to go much higher no matter what happens , if the world turns paper money into confetti which look like it might do then there is no top for gold and silver and real assets
Marc Faber : I was in a resource conference this is one of the resource conferences run by Standard Chartered Bank in Hong Kong all the miners are there and all the big shots in commodities and investors that are interested in commodities are there , ask the audience and you will think that these people have an exposure to Gold only about 5 people in an audience of like 400 had more than 5 percent of their assets in Gold , I find it amazing , I went already to 2 hedge fund conferences these are relatively intelligent people you would think but none of them had any exposure to Gold personally I said to them , you all intelligent people how come you do not have any gold at all don't you see what is happening with the money printing in the world , Gold was $252 in 1999 it is now $1580 (15 July 2011) they think it is expensive at this level what they do not consider is by how much credit has increased over the last ten years by how much the world population have increased over ten years by how much the supply of gold have increased , it is not increasing it is actually contracting , it the next five to ten years the total gold supply in the world will go up by precisely 3.8 percent no more , you know you mine something it is gone it is no longer there and so the supply that is no longer there is like Oil burned it is no longer there , every oil well runs dry over time " .." let's say you buy Gold today , I do not know it may go down say a $100 , here it goes down a $200 but looking at all the factors we discussed I do not believe that we are in a bubble stage , because I have lived through the last bubble in the late 70s I can tell you that the whole world followed the Gold market day and night and traded Gold 24 hours a day like the whole world traded NASDAQ stocks 24 hours a day in 1999 and 2000 that has not happened yet we do not have a heavy weighting we do not have a heavy kind of euphoria about Gold at all , the risk today is not to own Gold but to not to own any Gold , if you have no gold at all I think you are taking a risk , and my advise is simple every month you put some money aside and you buy a little bit of Gold you do not worry about the price fluctuation buy every month a little bit and your grand children will be very happy about that unless the US government takes it away that is a possibility with Mr Bernanke just look at him he particularly not a honest looking character ..."
- in The Financial Sense NewsHour Interview
2000 years ago 1/10 of oz could buy you a goat. Today 1/10 of oz can still buy you a goat...It's not that the Gold is expensive. It's the Dollar that is cheap...The Fed is planning 2 more rounds of " quantitative easing " ( monetizing the debt). So hyperinflation is a real possibility.German company is installing "Gold to Go" vending machines. They opened their first of 5000 gold ATM machines in Abu Dhabi and are focusing on Germany, Switzerland and a few other countries.Gold is becoming ever more popular, this is another good example of the new gold rush.
Will Rhind, Head of U.S. Operations at ETF Securities after Gold has broke the $1600 it has pulled back a little bit due to some profit taking says Rhind :" what we are seeing is Gold gone to $1600 which is a new all time high for gold and since then in the last couple of days it has pulled back a little bit , and if you look at the trend of gold in the last couple of years what we typically see is when gold has made a new high such as the $1600 level it has been subject to profit taking and therefore the price retraced a little bit from its all time high "
David Skarica is a Gold stock adviser is bullish on the Gold "with the US printing as much money as it is and Europe trying to resolve its debt crisis , the flee is to gold " says David Scarica " and I think this shown since the euro crisis begun to boil up again in June with the downgraded debt ib Greece and what not " what we are seeing is a rush to gold because of the debt problems in both the US and Europe , Gold will continue to be a benefactor of that
Peter Schiff : " Gold is going higher , it had a pull back today , if you price the DOW in terms of Gold yesterday the DOW was worth less than 7.8 ounces of Gold that's the lowest level since the bear market begun in 2000 when the DOW was worth 44 ounces of Gold "
"I think the Deal(about the debt ceiling) is bullish for Gold , contrary to all the scare tactics coming out of Washington , if we have an economic Armageddon which we may be have it is not going to be because we fail to raise the debt ceiling but because we succeed , the best thing for the market and the US economy and the worst thing for Gold is that we do not raise the debt ceiling and get our fiscal house in order right now , if we continue to kick the can down the road and raise the debt ceiling that's bullish for Gold and bearish for the US economy and bearish for the Dollar "
Peter Schiff is telling you truth. If you raise the debt ceiling any more, we are totally screwed. It's VERY obvious and I can't believe people are actually falling for this again. How hard is it to do simple math? Schiff was right about the economic collapse, housing bubble, and other problems within the market when most of the fools out there were saying "everything is fine, the market is great".
The fever of gold continues as investors pour into Gold and Silver in order to escape the European and America debt abysses .Even today, the precious metal rises above the threshold of $ 1660 per ounce. It is considered a "safe heaven" of wealth against the odds of the the U.S. and Europe the public debt crisis. By the end of the year gold price could go up as high as 3 thousand dollars. The problem is that the financial system, is incapable of producing real wealth but just debt through credit
Today the gold price is growing, as it is used to do for now almost 11 years. Yesterday it rose above a threshold of $ 1600 per ounce . Analysts say that this "fever" becomes more frantic when investors try to find some "haven" protection of wealth, before the abyss of the European American debt .
European governments, under pressure from the International Monetary Fund, will meet again in Brussels this week to re-think back about the Greek debt, Barack Obama juggles with the failure to find an agreement about raising the public debt ceiling in the U.S., while ratings agencies are threatening to downgrade the United States's rating.
This year the price of gold has increased by 13%, the biggest jump for 90 years. According to analysts, it is possible that if the debt crisis increases, the price of the precious metal will reach $ 1650 by the end of 2011 and will double in a few years. Considering that China and India are among those that most require it , the gold price could reach up to 5 thousand dollars an ounce by 2020.
The economist Bob Chapman said that "we will see a doubling of the price of gold, around 3 thousand dollars an ounce already this fall". Some time ago I calculated that if you take the entire global monetary liquidity expressed in the main reserve currency, the dollar, and you divide by the amount of physical gold available,This would lead to absurd figures, in the order of about 30 - 60 000 U.S. dollars per ounce. The real problem, is that "there is so much paper around, a lot of finance, and a few products of real value .Gold even at $1600 is still very under-priced said James Turk yesterday , there is definably a shortage in the physical gold and silver and the prices have only one way to go and that is up up and up with few corrections along the way...
Dominic Schnider, Head Commodity Research at UBS Wealth Management is bullish on Gold and expects the price of Gold to hit $1700 in next 3 months.There is a lot of demand presently taking place in Europe especially on the coin side not ETFs says Dominic people like to change their Fiat money into real hard assets like Gold and Silver ....
Hyper-Inflation To Push Gold price To Double by year end
James Turk of goldmoney.com on the Kerry Lutz - July 18, 2011 : " we are at $1600for gold and silver is back in the $40 , I made a contrary call because normally gold and silver are pretty quite during the summer months , because it is a seasonal pattern that tends to repeat , but it does not always work that way " says James Turk " I keep going back to 1982 when gold prices rose 50 percent in three months during the Mexican debt default and my point has been is this summer is going to be a repeat of 1982 it is not Mexico that is going to default this time it is going to be somebody else whether it is Greece United Kingdom Belgium Italy Spain United States Japan or anyone of a dozen other countries who knows , but it looks like it is gonna be a good couple of months for the metals as people worry about the default and move into the security of gold and silver ".....

Update on Gold soaring this morning to all-time highs Gold at $1600/oz Silver at $40/oz and climbing
Sharon Epperson :"....the spread continues to blow out. the spread is what a lot of traders with watching now. that's a reason why we are looking at it. here on the floor, all the action has been in the gold market. you have been talking about $1600 gold. also the fact that we have seen hedge funds adding position. there is a surge in the long positions. a big reason why we are looking at the higher price as well. not only in dollar terms. it's important to realize Bernanke said he didn't believe gold is money. when you look at gold in euros, the pound, the yen, we are at new highs here. people around the world are using gold as alternate currency and silver as well. the highest we have seen since the beginning of may. over $40. the percentage gain higher than what we are seeing in gold. this is the currency folks are focused on. "
Ron Paul vs Bernanke : Is Gold Money? - July 13, 2011 Congressman Ron Paul questions Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke in a U.S. House Financial Services Committee Meeting shortly after reports surfaced that the Federal Reserve was preparing for a third round of quantitative easing.
"I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire, ...The man that controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply."
-Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild
“When you wake up in the morning, do you care about the price of gold?” he asked Mr. Bernanke.
“Well,” Bernanke replied. “I pay attention to the price of gold. But I think it reflects a lot of things. It reflects global uncertainties. I think the reason people hold gold is as protection against of what we call tail risks, really, really bad outcomes.
And to the extent that the last few years have made people more worried about the potential of a major crisis then they have gold as a protection.”
Paul: “Do you think gold is money?”
Bernanke: “No. It’s a precious metal.”
Paul: “Even if it’s been money for 6,000 years? Somebody reversed that and eliminated that economic law?”
Bernanke: “Well, you know, it’s an asset. Would you say treasury bills are money? I don’t think they’re money either, but they’re a financial asset.”
Paul: “Why do central banks hold it (gold) if it’s not money?”
The Federal Reserve Chairman’s admission that gold is “protection” against “tail risks” and “really, really bad outcomes” is important and marks another step towards gold’s movement from being a fringe asset to being a core part of a properly diversified portfolio.
Gold is increasingly being seen as an important safe haven asset and specifically as currency (despite Bernanke’s feeble denial of this.)
Many speculate that this interview may be seen as another landmark in gold’s move from “barbaric relic” to a mainstream investment and savings vehicle.
David Bond of the SilverSummit is a strong believer that silver could double in price very soon , silver is an irreplaceable metal , the only thing that can replace silver as an industrial commodity is palladium in terms of its conductivity and reflectivity etc...we are hitting in a big squeeze in the market , JP Morgan Stanley which is hugely short silver tries to cover , I think their short covering is probably what's driving the momentum I really do not see a top for it yet says David Bond as a log term investment silver is better than gold it has bigger leverage , it is easier for the price of silver to double than it is for gold
Silver, Infinite Dangers & Survival , Gary Yantis is an engineer Recently retired. Active in trading penny stocks and politics. he is specialized in Silver and have been warning about the silver shortage for long time ....there are ten thousand usages of silver and unless the silver price hits $1000/oz it is not practical to retrieve the silver that is used in circuitery etc....
GoldAnd Silver Prices Expected To Skyrocket With US Debt Ceiling Worries , Bill Gross who is Pimco's largest bond fund manager in the world he mentioned when adding in all the money owed to cover future liabilities and entitlement programs the United States is actually in worse financial shape than Greece and other European countries , this is obviously nothing new but what was happening over the prior weeks up until today it is building up , it is like a pressure cooker getting ready to explode , w gonna have to continue to raise this debt (ceiling) and if we do not what's gonna happen is we will default on the loans that America has , you should hold on assets like gold and silver that's where the strenght and the protection are , do not worry about what the stock market is doing , mutual funds the safe heaven right now is in Gold and Silver you get to hold on to for safe keeping....
James Turk of Goldmoney on Goldseek Radio July 12, 2011 : " to me it seems inevitable , the US government is spending more money than the market is willing to lend to it , that means that you will have to the central bank and the central bank turns that borrowing into currency which the government spends or the government has to cut back and there is no indication whatsoever that the US government is going to cut back at any of its spending aspirations I mean it can't even agree to cutting the spending in the future when in fact what it should be doing is cutting spending right here and now , so it seems to me that QE3 is inevitable and ultimately that's going to destroy the dollar to more inflation if not hyperinflation "..." this is the summer that could surprise people , to me it is setting up like the summer of 1982 when gold soared during the Mexican debt default , Mexico is not the center of attention now obviously it's Europe Greece Spain Italy anyone amongst a dozen of countries around the world who have too much debt and are over leveraged , but people think the summer is going to be a quite time , going to the beach , seasonally gold often slows during the summer , I think this is going to be a summer again like 1982 really surprises people , so I am very bullish here and the fact that this correction that we had over the last couple of months driven a record amount of people out of the market suggest to me how strong the metals have been during this correction ..."
Adrian Douglas is a Director of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) and editor of the Market Force Analysis Letter : '" a lot of people try to dismiss manipulation without really looking at the facts " there is a perfect correlation between the prices of Gold and Silver says Adrian Douglas , since October that correlation is broken down ,...the manipulation cannot continue forever there has never been a manipulation of a market that has continued forever , this is a true opportunity for investors cause the price of gold and silver have been kept well below their market value the investors will make huge gains when the Gold and Silver find their true market values
Gold to all time highs among fears of Italy defaulting but also fears about the debt ceiling in American and then possibly with the soft economic data coming out another round of quantitative easing hints about QE3 from the Fed , all these factors helped the Gold prices settling at a record high on Tuesday also hitting and intra day high on Wednesday , the macro environment has turned favorable for gold but what's really impressive, is that currently we're in a seasonally week period for demand particularly out of asia, but we're still seeing gold prices hit record highs
Once again and because of the heist that was created by the Zerohedge article regarding the 'over the counter gold and silver ' market after the July 15th , many people were induced to believe that they won't be able to buy gold and silver bullion after July 15th , this is NOT TRUE , the so called Dod-Frank Bill does not have anything to do with the small investors who want to buy gold or silver over the counter , Bob Chapman explained it in details , here is another expert Andy Gause talking about the same topic and explaining it in detail , the interview is from the Jeff Rense Radio aired )7 July 2011
The latest details from the Fed and the FOMC meeting, say that the FED is debating a QE3 and an exit strategy, while Gold has reached an all time high this morning surpassing the previous $1577/oz nominal all time high of last May , many experts have warned that QE3 is inevitable despite the FED denied that it won't call another QE after the end of QE2 last June ....Gold price seem on fire since yesterday and it is very likely that gold today will end well above $1580/oz silver too is climbing and is over $37/oz so far....
Bob Chapman : ..anybody who is in Gold and Silver coins bullion and shares is going to make a lot of money because absolute minimum the Gold can go to is $3000/oz nominally $6000/oz to $8000/oz " everybody in those investments will be able to protect their buying power by holding them (Gold and Silver) rather than the dollar or any other currency
In this Coast To Coast AM - 10.7.2011 , financial analyst Joe Meyer provided an update on a number of facets surrounding the economic crisis including the debt ceiling, the dollar as world reserve currency, and the rising price of gold and silver.money is a medium it is an agreement to exchange goods and services , the Dollar became the world reserve currency in July 1944 at the meeting of Bretton Woods , President Nixon removed the dollar convertibility to Gold on August 1971 , since then the dollar is backed by the general faith in credit standing of the United States Government
. We are in the early stages of a massive bull market in the precious metals we have at least another decade of rising prices , to put it in perspective , We had 5 prior commodity bull markets in the last 200 years and each of them lasted between 18 and 20 years in the overall big picture this bull market has not even begun we are going to go significantly higher , if we look back at the previous bull market we had which was from 1970 to 1981 Gold basically took nine years to go to 200 dollars and one year to go to $850 so if you look at the bull market from $35 to $850 you get a factor of 24 times if we apply that to the Gold bottom which was made in 2001 and we multiply basically $255 times 24 we get a potential finaly bull market high in Gold $6920/oz

The PIIGS economies cannot gain control of their currency, until such times that they understand that they have to have a valid economy to begin with, and which they were supposed to have established, by now. Simply exiting the €uro and reintroducing an alternative, national currency, will only temporarily kick the can, down the road, at best. The success of the €uro depends on all the €urozone members/economies working in concert, since the €uro is akin to a gold standard, so long as some participants do not act, in effect, to debase its value, by, for example, bilking the likes of Germany, which is currently on an upswing of economic growth, yet is not guaranteed to maintain that trajectory, as was the case in the 1990s and early 2000s.

More bullish news , and experts like bob Chapman forecasting that Gold and Silver will go up by a 100 to 150 percent in 6 months from now , if you are thinking of buying Gold and Silver do it now you may never get these low prices ever again , the market manipulators cannot hold those prices low forever , once they take their hands off the market the prices will shoot to the moon , here are some bullish news for you , India to import 350 tons of Gold and 1200 tons of silver , before the Chinese and the Indians used to wait for the dips to buy now they buy no matter what the price is , because they very well know that the prices are kept artificially very low...the Euro is collapsing the Dollar is collapsing the central banks are printing fiat currency faster than ever , so what you do ??? go buy as much gold and silver as you possibly can
Peter Schiff : ...I do not even know why would people double in Numismatics , It is totally different than buying Gold , buying numismatic has as much in common with buying Gold as collecting stamps , or buying works of art or buying rare Samurai swords or baseball cards , it is about collectors market it is about buying something that's rare and that people desire for its rarity not for the fact that it got metal , ...if you wanna be a collector and if you enjoy I mean there is certain enjoyment that people can get out of owning rare coins and displaying rare coins and talking to their friends about them , you can get some type of enjoyment from rare coins that may be you can't get from bullion , but you have to understand that those are not the coins that you buy and try to sell in few years and make a profit these are the coins that you wanna hold , if you do it right you may get the right coins the problem is most of the rare coins , collector coins that are being marketed through the major coin firms are not rare at all , they posses no collectors value whatsoever the problem is the buyer does not know that , he is told that they have some kind of special value but the only special value they have is through the firms that are selling them because they mark them up a massive amount , typically now in the industry the mark ups are 50 to a 100 percent so if you buy some of these coins marked up a 100 percent the market needs to double , the price of gold might have to double before you can sell them and get your money back that you put in , and most people do not realise that this is not going to happen ....
Jon Nadler, senior analyst at Kitco.com, says that the Gold and Silver markets are in wait and see mode "Well I think they're looking to see what happens" "markets will be in wait and see mode. One of the things that kind of seems to be bothering at the moment into the gold so complex is that we have really. Lackluster open interests and these moves have been made largely like it's. Absent participation. So would have to be careful here."
Bob Chapman : ...there is a chance that gold can move up dramatically during the summer which is unusual but by the end of the year or six months from now we should have have much higher prices , if you go back and look at the charts long term charts , I do not use short term charts because the markets are manipulated , now in history of gold and silver when you have a testing of a support area six times or five times or four times , but six times is unusual it gives a tremendously strong support area , and with the Rico file suite that been filed for the manipulation of the silver market against JP Morgan Chase and HSBC that just fuels the situation and the fact that there were big short covering the week before last end tomorrow we will find out what they covered up until two days ago this past Tuesday as a gap in the release of the information , now if you go back and look at those charts you will see that the average move after this kind of a foundational testing the move of the following six months is somewhere between a 100 and a 150 percent so Gold at $1500 and it goes up a 100% it is $3000 and silver at $35 it is $70 and at 150% you figured out ....
Bob Chapman : ...commercials mean banks and these are the characters that have been rigging the arket for years , they were very heavily short and what happened is they covered a good part of their shorts that means that either they stay out of the market or they go long , I do not think they are going to go long so they are to go short may be sometime in the future ...this means there is no overhang on the Gold and Silver, in the next while within 6 months probably much sooner gold and silver are going to go up a 100 to a 150 percent , that's for historical perspective and make notice of it says Bob Chapman of the International forecaster , I have been doing this for 52 years , I know everything that happens in the Gold and Silver market I was the largest gold and silver stock broker in the world and so I know what's gonna happen ....and there is going to be enormous amount of money made and so if you are thinking about buying gold and silver coins bullion or shares do it because you will never buy them any cheaper
Bob Chapman : last Friday night Saturday I said that Silver and Gold have bottomed out at a support level and I said that I felt that was it and that on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday the market will be back up again and long and behold I was right , the significant part of hat happens was that it was a major naked short covering by HSBC JPM and others in both silver and gold but in particular in Silver , they knew the lawsuit was on the way ....Related ETFs : Ishares Silver ETF (SLV), SPDR GOld ETF (GLD) SPDR GOld ETF (GLD), Powershares DB SPDR Gold ETF (GLD), Newmont Mining (NEM), Barrick Gold (ABX), GoldCorp (GG)
